[access-uk] Re: BT 195 on my mobile

That's the exact reason why I want it as well, as I want to be able to get the number as a text. Please keep me informed as to what happens! I recall, once they also told me that it will be set up in 72 hours, but I didn't get any result! thanks for posting this info. if your successful, i'll give it another shot! ----- Original Message ----- From: "Eleanor Burke " <eleanorburke@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I tried it last night on my Vodafone pay as you go as it is set up on my Vodafone contract now for well over a year at my request. Like you I was greeted with a message that it was not set-up and that I should phone Vodafone on 191 from the same handset. I did. Got through after making the necessary choices given. Then I was advised that my call would be at a flat rate of 25 pence and that I could disconnect at that point. I waited and when the person came on line explained that I wanted the 195 directory set up on that handset and that it was a free service for blind and partially sighted. He said he had never heard of it. I was then treated to the music while he looked it up. Sure enough he came back on the line and read out what he found. I then had to give him myPIN and name and address. He also took my number I was dialling from and said it would be set up within 48 - 72 hours but I should bear in mind that it was the bank holiday weekend and therefore may take a little longer. Will let you know when it is up and running. It is an excellent service as I know from my contract mobile because I am able to request the number I want in a text message.

well, when I dile 195, a recorded message tells me I need to register, but
when I call vodaphone, they say it should work and keep me weighting for
ages and they do not resolve the problem. Now I've just given up.

Bilal

I have not been able to use 195 on my 02 mobile for years.  I did phone
but they were adamant that the service was not available.

I can't get 195 to work with vodaphone, and when ever I try and call them
about it, it's like I have to hang on until the phone battery dies!

Does Orange not hae a website where you can send in a question?  Sounds
like an aweful lot of money to lose when changing accounts.  I certainly
would not suffer such a huge loss.

No but I mentioned on this list a little while ago that I can't access
it on Orange. I still can't.

Other Orange customers got back and said that they weren't having any
trouble.

Andy do you use an iPhone?

I ask because I have an iPhone account with Orange and I lost 195 when
I
switched from my regular orange account to my new iPhone orange
account.


I get an unobtainable tone when I dial 195 on my mobile. I've attempted
to call Orange customer services about this a couple of times now but I
lose the will to live after hanging on for 15 minutes or more and
haven't yet had an opportunity to talk to a human being about it.

Hello All,
I don't know if you can help, I have got a Virgin mobile with a Virgin
sim in it and the problem is, I am not able to ring 195.
As soon as I ring it, I don't get through.
I just get cut off as soon as I have pressed the call butten.
It used to work before and now it is not.
Has any one had this problem with Virgin  mobile

Andrew
